PMB’s Buhay Migrante: Hinagpis at Ligaya, Luha at Halakhak

Community Round Up Dec 17, 2008 at 4:14 pm


Members and friends of Pilipinong Migrante sa Barrie [PMB] are all smiles after their first major community event dubbed Buhay Migrante: Hinagpis at Ligaya, Luha at Halakhak [A Migrant’s Life: Sorrow and Joy, Tears and Laughter] held last Dec. 6 in Barrie, Ontario. PMB’s “coming out” event was a night of song and dance, rhythm and rhyme, a glimpse into their lives as migrant Filipinos seeking a better life while struggling for a brighter future for themselves and their families in this “Oh Canada” foreign land.

PMB members in indigenous colourful costumes wowed the audience with their graceful tribal dance.
